Fulham manager Felix Magath took training on Sunday for the first time since becoming Fulham’s new manager.

The German – appointed on Friday evening after Rene Meulensteen was relieved of his duties – was at the club’s Motspur Park training ground less than 48 hours later to begin work.

The make-up of Magath’s backroom staff has not yet been revealed, although reports Ray Wilkins has already left the club are wide of the mark.

Meulensteen’s former assistant is in discussions with the Fulham hierarchy over what role, if any, he will play in the new regime.

And technical director Alan Curbishley, who was at Motspur Park on Sunday, is also in talks over the best way forward.

Magath now has the best part of a week to prepare his players for Saturday’s trip to West Brom, and Fulham will go to The Hawthorns two points adrift at the bottom of the Premier League.

Record signing Kostas Mitroglou is in line to make his debut in that game after scoring twice for the U21 side in midweek.
